Giorgos Stefanou's Travelling in Space-Time is an imaginary journey to a future form of civilisation, that will eventually overcome today's weaknesses. One may conclude the driving factor for this search could be related to a religious understanding of salvation, an eventual reward for a troubled life, but that seems to run contrary to the gloomy scenery and its lack of euphoria. Instead there is the conscience of one's vulnerable existence, thrown into a rather hostile environment and a lifeless machinery as substitute for human communication. A journey which appears like a disillusioned look into the mirror with no one or any circumstances to blame.
Travelling in Space-Time leaves the acoustic impression of a silent drama sci-fi movie, with the basic theme vocabulary highlighting different angles of Giorgos Stefanou's vision. Spectromorphological mutations will keep the basic idea by and large, whilst allowing signatures and traits to be altered, with form following function and complementing masses and proportions. Absent any happy ending, the outcome is left undefined and the abrupt final stresses the unreal character of this vision. Travelling in Space-Time is a demanding but also rewarding work to listen to and certainly one of Giorgos Stefanou's finest works so far.
